dinner at Don Quijote Spanish Cafe, and a visit to an art show

we have a large number signed up for this event, and i need to make a fairly accurate reservation for dinner.  please cancel if you have decided not to come, and please answer the dinner question.  thanks. 

dear friends--

we invite you to an evening of good food and culture in friendly downtown Valparaiso.

we will meet for dinner at Don Quijote Spanish Cafe http://donquijotevalpo.com/restaurant/index.html , with good food and ambiance, and sometimes music, and a likely tableside visit from chef Carlos Rivero.

following dinner, we will cross the street to the Blackbird Coffee House to view our own Cyndy Mangan's art show, "Fragments."

here's what Cyndy says about her show--

"I would like to welcome all to the opening of my art exhibit.  This will be the first show for me in many years and will be a solo show in a casual coffeehouse environment.  I will be showing new work which consists of mainly abstract collages and some giclee prints.  I am using mixed media:  charcoal, ink, paint, graphite, fabric fragments and wax...... to build textured surfaces.  The title of the exhibit is "Fragments".  I like to work in a fairly experimental way, with limited control over some elements."

Saturday May 17  7-10
Blackbird Café, 114 e Lincolnway, Valparaiso, IN  46383

please join us for this evening of culture, fellowship, and fun.
